Hi There, 

 

I can live view, however when I press the manual record button, it shows as recording, however there is no way to stop the recording, so I exit the live view and enter again, and I see no manual recorded file on the cloud. Why is this?

Hi @isidrology

 

I was not able to replicate this issue, please make sure you are updated to the latest version of the Arlo mobile app.

I'm always on the latest app version.. 

 

I can uninstall and install again and see waht happens. 

 

But how do you stop the video?

 

My manual recordings always stop at random times, is there a limit to this manual recording?

When you want to stop a manual recording, you should be able to press the red manual button again and it will stop and save to your library.

 

I have a few questions for you

  • Which Arlo app is this occurring on (Android/iOS?
  • What is the version of the mobile app?
  • Does this occur on the web browser as well?
  • which cameras does this issue occur with?

Thank you!

what happens if I exit out of the app before I press the button again to stop? does it not save the file?

 

V3.1_28345

 

only test with arlo baby, haven't tried with pro 2 yet. 

 

previously when i try with the pro 2s it will auto stop at random times, is there a max length of video you can manually record?

Thank you for the update. 

 

Q. What happens if I exit out of the app before I press the button again to stop? does it not save the file?

 

A. Yes, the recording should automatically save if you happen to close the app after initiating a manual recording. 

 

The manual recording length should be capable of up to 30 minutes.

I don't have the Arlo Baby, but with other Arlo cameras you need to keep the app open while making a manual recording.

I haven't tested the other ones. but tried to manually again on the baby last night. trying to catch the little one singing.. 

 

and i all i got was 2 seconds of recording.. when the app was still open. I couldn't even stop the recording because of some error. 

 

basically manual recording on the baby is useless..
